Release BadgeMaker

ScreenCheck biedt een nieuwe release van onze desktop ID badge software, BadgeMaker 2.6.2 aan.  Naast een aantal mooie nieuwe features en verbeteringen van de software hebben ook de BadgeMaker website en de License Manager een kleine facelift gekregen. 

De voornaamste veranderingen:

  • Braziliaans Portugees toegevoegd aan de al bestaande talen
    Engels, Spaans, Duits, Frans, Pools en Nederlands.
  • Card designs kunnen nu meteen bij het aanmaken van een BM project worden toegevoegd,
    en snel updaten kan nu via een knop in de layouts panel.
  • Quick-print settings worden nu opgeslagen en opgehaald uit de user default print settings.
    Dit voorkomt verwarring, en zorgt er ook voor dat er geen problemen ontstaan na een printer driver update.
  • De Magicard Ultima wordt nu ondersteund (weliswaar nog steeds met een paar known SDK issues).
  • Uitbreiding van de automatische error reporting. Gebruikers die metrics hebben uitstaan zullen na een crash
    worden gevraagd of toch (eenmalig) een report opgestuurd mag worden.
  • BadgeMaker Design biedt nu fixed-length instellingen voor dynamische velden.
  • Tekst elementen hebben nu een ‘fit’ instelling, dat er voor zorgt dat de tekst altijd binnen
    de randen van het element past (door de font size dynamisch kleiner te maken).

Daarnaast gaat het vooral om een flink aantal kleine verbeteringen en crash-fixes.
